Yesterday I became ill with what I thought was just a head cold. I had an early night and set my alarm for 6:30 this morning ready to get to work by 7 today.
A few hours into my shift it became clear that I had more than a head cold. I felt terrible: I was extremely drowsy and my whole body was aching. I managed to leave my shift 2 hours early and was so relieved to be home and resting. I think I may have mild flu of some kind as I checked out some online websites and I have most of the symptoms:
- sudden fever (a temperature of 38°C/100.4°F or above),
- dry, chesty cough,
- aching muscles,
- limb or joint pain,
- diarrhoea or stomach upset,
- sore throat,
- runny or blocked nose,
- loss of appetite, and
- difficulty sleeping. (Source.)
Its been sort of nice to have a legitimate excuse to lay down and get some rest. I’ve taken hostage of the sofa with a blanket and some cushions and to help cheer me up I’ve had piggy cuddles and been watching Sex And The City movie (for the millionth time, I add)
I love the Sex And The City series and the first movie! I’ve watched the film to death but the thing I love about watching films over and over, is that you notice new things each time. Check out the pug I noticed today in this clip:
If it wasn’t for my new love for pugs I would have never noticed the little clip of a pug in the movie! It made me giggle anyways LOL.
I really hope that with some rest and a few good nights sleep I’ll be back to normal ASAP. I think that I should completely forget about making the most out of the gym before my holiday if I plan on making a quick recovery as I could just make myself even more run down. Its a shame but I’m not too worried as long as I’m healthy by Tuesday! Tomorrow I plan on doing some moderate holiday packing.
6 days to go!
